The focus of the boycott thread is not to get hung up over some strict semantic criteria, but to gather a list of people who are stopping and/or reducing their spending on GOG, in order to send a message to the management that GOG is heading down the wrong path. If someone is reducing their spending by 80%+ of what they were before, because of GOG's poor decisions and crumbling standards, that will have an impact on GOG's bottom line and I would consider that totally in line with the goals of the boycott.
Well said.....we need to be coming together, not nitpicking who is boycotting best or etc(which mainly helps to drive those doing so apart).
As for free games, I have no problem with people who say they are boycotting picking those up. They're not giving money to GOG, so it doesn't really matter. I have avoided them myself for the most part, because I want to support smaller developers, and as far as I am aware they get no money if I snag their game for free.
Idea: grab the games if they're offered free, then send some money to the devs directly(then they get all the money)
Of course who wrote the disclaimer isn't that important, but I simply can't buy the theory that has been presented here and elsewhere that GOG wouldn't be able to change information on their own website.
They have little power over the text/pics/etc.....and its not just a theory: I told them some info(plot/etc) was inaccurate on a game page and support told me they couldn't change it without the IP holder's permission.
I'm on Windows 10, Processor's Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4790 CPU @ 3.60GHz, 8 gigs RAM, GFX card is a GTX 1060 6GB. I played with all settings at max, resolution at 1920x1080. The computer is pushing 5 years old, but I don't want to compromise on graphics settings, so I'd rather wait to play this on my next computer than turn the settings down. I only finished the Paris level and played a bit of Sapienza, and I had slowdowns both online and offline. I think it's due to the size of the maps, since the ICA training missions ran smoothly.
Does the game have a texture/etc precaching setting(in the menus or config files)? I ask as I had very slow frame rates in Wolfenstein: Old Blood....then I turned those settings on and suddenly the game ran like butter.
I have no problem with what you think about the boycott. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. I do think however --- and I hope I have made it clear with my little attempt at humour above --- that implying that one's opinion is the only valid one is rather counterproductive and perhaps even rude.
And inferring/implying/outright stating that someone else's stance/degree of adoption(on things like boycotts and etc) makes them a bad person is even worse.
That said, to the above: well said
